What I’ve Been Up To …

Actually, these links happen to be one of the things that I’ve been up to. It’s good to flex one’s writing “muscles” – and I’d like to thank Flipgeeks.com for the writing workout. And thanks, Dad, for leading me to them …

“The Pugs of Westeros – Cuteness is Coming” (July 4, 2014)

“The Day of the … Dalekor?! A Japanese DOCTOR WHO Parody Hits Online” (July 23, 2014)

“A Food Trip Along the Maginhawa Strip: A Flipgeeks Report of the 1st Quezon City Food Festival” (October 26, 2014)

“COMIC BOOK REVIEW: Strange Natives – The Boy With Capiz Eyes” (October 28, 2014 – my very first comic book review! ^^)

“Casanova Quinn’s Spy Games” (October 30, 2014)

“Step Inside the Westeros Jazz Lounge, Ladies and Gentlemen …” (November 1, 2014)


Ika-labing isa ng Setyembre, 2001

I just remembered that today is September 11, and while wandering around the internet, I found a video tribute to some of the Filipino casualties on that tragic and fateful day. I guess it serves as a reminder that 9/11 isn’t just an “American” tragedy – it was everyone’s tragedy …

(“Saan Ka Man Naroroon” is a traditional Filipino ballad, and is roughly translated as “Wherever You May Be”)

“You Gotta Be” by Des’ree

What better way to begin the new year than with an inspirational song that became a hit 20 years ago? My, oh my …

“Peponi” (an African-style cover of Coldplay’s “Paradise”) by The Piano Guys and guest artist Alex Boyé

When soul, talent, spirit and a genuine love for music crowd out ego and self-promotion, this is what happens …

What I think about Miley Cyrus …

This is going to be a rather short entry because I don’t want this Miley Cyrus / Robin Thicke / ugly-giant-teddy-bears thing (I refuse to call it “entertainment” or even a “performance”) to take up any more of my hallowed internet and brain space. Nearly everyone and his / her Lola Mely and Kuya Jojo had something to say about it anyways, and whatever I would like to say about the subject has already been said.

Anyhoo, it’s a pity Freddie’s not around anymore.  Imagine if there was a great big rift and 360-loop in the time-space continuum, and they performed “I Want to Break Free” at the VMAs.

Freddie Mercury in drag – way, way prettier and a lot classier than the ballyhooed Miss Cyrus …

Let me show you how to do this twerking thing properly, darling …

Twerk, twerk, swoosh, swoosh – at the count of 5, hold and release …

And that’s how you give a smashing performance and a sparkling, dust-free stage, darlings! 😉


“Le Bel Age” by Pat Benatar

One of my favorite Pat Benatar songs, an under-rated classic …

“Dreamer, you’ve had your way; soldier, you’ve had your day in the sun …
Now it’s time; oh, it’s time for us to begin again … “

“She Works Hard for the Money” by Donna Summer

Happy Labor Day! Please treat us right, okay? 🙂

“The Sweetest Taboo” by Sade

Who needs Beyoncé when we have a class act like her? =)

“Honeybee” by Steam Powered Giraffe

One of a handful of songs I never, ever get tired of listening …

“Hello, goodbye, ’twas nice to know you,
How I find myself without you,
That I’ll never know.
I let myself go …
Hello, goodbye, I’m rather crazy.
And I never thought I was crazy,
But what do I know?”
